Tablets of Destiny by Joshua Free THE TABLETS OF DESTINY:
USING ANCIENT WISDOM TO UNLOCK HUMAN POTENTIAL
by Joshua Free

FIRST EDITION available in:
HARDCOVER or PAPERBACK

Here is the first ever public demonstration of secret knowledge and wisdom drawn from the legendary cuneiform relics, far surpassing any previous academic interpretation of ancient artifacts available–a futurist map uncovered that leads the potential of the Human Condition from here to Infinity!

More “Mardukite ink” has been spilled regarding the Enuma Eliš than any other cuneiform tablet cycle. So, it might seem, at first glance, that there would be no new data to glean for our purposes. However, we have never provided a treatment of this cornerstone from the degree of Awareness attainable at our current level of understanding, and certainly never publicly in connection to the elusive TABLETS OF DESTINY which appear throughout our most ancient texts as the definitive key to commanding true authority as Self in the physical universe.

Tablets of Destiny: Using Ancient Wisdom to Unlock Human Potential by Joshua Free

For nearly a decade these matters remained privately in the domain of an advanced division of the “Mardukite Research Organization” known from its brief public references as the “NexGen Systemological Society” (NSS) governing the new “International School of Systemology” (ISS). This faction has operated in the esoteric underground since 2011, developing a direct extension of the “Mardukite Core” to support research and discovery of continuing work, as it applies to the present state of the Human Condition and its imminent future.

THE FIRST TRUE FUTURIST TRANSHUMANIST MOVEMENT TO EVOLVE HUMANITY USING ONLY SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY – AND WITHOUT ENSLAVING CONSCIOUSNESS TO MACHINES.

At our “first level of understanding,” the Enuma Eliš is a treatise regarding “magical practices” in ancient Babylon, contributing to the “systematized religion” distributed among the common Mesopotamian population. There are no shortage of rites and workable methodologies derivable at this level in which to occupy the civic mind and social awareness of humanity (at a physio-emotional degree of Awareness). In fact, this is what has been going on for some time in Western civilization—at least 4,000 years—since the perfected Babylonian codification of Human systems. Even the data that appears fairly concrete within the confines of this “physical” level—including the vast catalogs of terminology and definitions provided by the physical sciences—may still fall under the category of “superstition” when treated at “higher” clearer degrees of Awareness.

Tablets of Destiny by Joshua Free Ancient efforts to successfully systematize the material world, using Babylonia as its epicenter, are attributed to the Anunnaki god “Nabu”—meaning “the speaker” or “prophet”—who heralded a rise of the original ancient “Mardukite” standard in Babylon, in honor of his “father” Marduk, the central hero of the Enuma Eliš.

This was accomplished by the establishment of a “priesthood”—a distinct learned portion of the general population—dispensing the “mysteries” from the “second level of understanding,” using the “written word” as their medium—something incredibly revolutionary for its time. In doing so, the “Mardukite paradigm”—at an exclusively “intellectual degree of awareness”—became a global standard, perpetually influencing worldly systems of the Human Condition in every social institution imaginable: philosophy of individualism; management of family life; the structure of societal roles; and even world order. All of which is reflected by an intellectual treatment of wisdom from these proverbial TABLETS OF DESTINY.

The “third level of understanding” is the highest degree—in total Self-Honest clarity of Awareness as Self—directly demonstrable from the TABLETS OF DESTINY. This incredibly superior level of realization is often misappropriated simply as “spiritual” in former philosophical and religious outlines throughout history—but in spite of vocabulary they may use, most philosophical and spiritual paradigms are still only treated, at best, from the “second level of understanding,” as comprehended purely from an intellectual level by the “most educated” of those institutions. These folk tend to pride themselves on their superior scope of discernment regarding that particular vocabulary (and “semantic-set”) within the realm or community that they operate. Very little of such arcane lore is information that actually and observably assists the individual or Self in achieving any higher levels of understanding—the purpose of which would be to advance an individual toward the point of “Self-Honesty!”

FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE – Tablets of Destiny : Lost Mesopotamian Wisdom Tradition Revealed!

Previous Mardukite Blog
on Tablets of Destiny by Joshua Free.

Within these pages, Joshua Free presents the first public esoteric knowledge synthesis of wisdom concerning these legendary relics—a presentation far surpassing the scope of former academic and scholarly research regarding ancient artifacts and their interpretation for modern use.


Released for the first time to the public, outside the underground network of the NexGen Systemological Society (NSS), TABLETS OF DESTINY: USING ANCIENT WISDOM TO UNLOCK HUMAN POTENTIAL by Joshua Free, provides the groundbreaking revolutionary debut installment of “Grade III – Mardukite Systemology” — the previously undisclosed advanced spiritual technology of Mardukite Zuism derived from the most ancient cuneiform tablets on the planet.

In TABLETS OF DESTINY: USING ANCIENT WISDOM TO UNLOCK HUMAN POTENTIAL, Joshua Free essentially maps the highest route to esoteric knowledge—expertly bridging materials from the “Mardukite Core” (Research Library) with the amazing wisdom and latest clarity deciphered by the advanced “NexGen Systemology” New Thought division of the “Mardukite Research Organization.”


“The marked distinction between ‘destiny’ and ‘fate’ eludes many people. In fact, the modern English language provides very little support for separating these concepts in the mind, going so far—or not so far—as to simply use one to define the other. And they are not the same. Several early ‘NexGen Systemology’ knowledge lectures (given by Joshua Free from 2011 through 2013) pertained to etymology—or else, the ‘origins of words and their meaning’—and among these, the most frequently given lecture specifically described an apparent distinction between ‘destiny’ and ‘fate.’
–Reed Penn, in the Foreword to “Tablets of Destiny”

“We may take these words for granted today, but we are mistaken when using them interchangeably. Even the Sumerians, in their original development of basic vocabulary, displayed a differentiation between the word ‘fate’ (nam) and ‘destiny,’ displayed in Sumerian cuneiform with the combination of the signs: nam (‘fate’) and tar (‘to cut’); or namtar, meaning literally ‘to decree (or ordain) fate.’ And while the more ‘advanced’ language developed, and Akkadian (Babylonian) includes a great many additional words in its vocabulary, we find the two concepts suddenly blurred even then into a single expression: šīmāti (pronounced ‘shye-may-tee’) to denote ‘destiny’ or ‘what is fixed and established.’ In esoteric and mystical instances, it is no wonder that each subsequent culture in Mesopotamia would continue to borrow many former Sumerian terms for their own language, especially as a ‘sacred,’ ‘religious’ or otherwise ‘magical’ language—just as we see in the case of the Assyrians (and others) that continued to perform rituals and speak incantations in former Akkadian and Sumerian tongues. Even today many prefer to practice their most obscure ‘magical rites’ in some foreign Latin or Greek—or Enochian, and so on.”
–Reed Penn, in the Foreword to “Tablets of Destiny”


Tablets of Destiny by Joshua Free A true understanding of Cosmic Law—which is our Destiny as beings in Existence—is what ancient cuneiform records allude to as perfect knowledge of Self in the Universe—reflected on TABLETS OF DESTINY—a fundamental once only known to the “gods,” or else, the uppermost echelons of ancient society.

We must understand who we are as this Self—and how we may most effectively operate within the boundaries and freedoms of this Game.

–How can we truly know the nature of our Fate, when we have, at best, a fragmented understanding of why we are even doing what we do?

–How can we effectively direct our reality engineering efforts from Spirit, if we still treat the phenomenon of our Fate from an intellectual viewpoint of mysteriousness?

These are the problems that we are applying solutions to at this Grade, and knowledge tier, called: “Mardukite Systemology.”

MARDUKITE NECRONOMICON — “Real” ANUNNAKI BIBLE is Origins of Everything! Even Judeo-Christian Scriptures!

Many have long wondered the truth—and it is available to us as clear today as it was thousands and thousands of years ago—impressed on ancient clay tablets… the first true writings at the inception of modern human civilization—some of which extend back to the time of the first societies, the first cities, the first systems, the first…well… everything. And while humanity has had a turbulent history ever since, what has suffered the most in all of this time is precisely the retention, understanding and basic ability to know the truth about the origins of everything. How things came to be what they are today is not as important as a return to the source and rediscovery of the original knowledge—the truth as it was laid out before the convolution of further systems and cultural fragmentation.

Where does one turn for answers?
And are there answers for us?

Sometimes the desire to “know” is not tempered with wisdom and discernment. We have all seen the types that have allowed the pursuit of esoteric knowledge to drive them “crazy”—so vastly interrupting and impeding any sense of “normalcy” that they either fall by the wayside or worse, become forever lost to a personal roller-coaster ride—closed tracked and cyclic, providing perpetual stimulation and the illusion of movement… but what true enlightenment? Where is the ascension if the movement is not perpetually upward—unfolding laden potentials that are not restricted to just what we can conceive of today. We begin to allow ourselves the freedom to achieve these states of higher awareness by acquiring and maintaining “true knowledge” as we process our experience of reality and what is possible.

Fortunately, for the past decade, a group called the “Mardukite Chamberlains” (or “Mardukite Research Organization”) has refined a collection of the most ancient writings on the planet, presented as an amazing source book of renderings drawn from ancient Mesopotamia—the land of Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Chaldeans—and its treasure trove of clay cuneiform tablets, completely translated, beautifully presented and accessible for all to see! What’s more, this amazing book—NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free—has been carefully arranged and developed by those who actually take these matters seriously, not simply an academic interest or scholarly career. The etheric, astral and intellectual gateways that these materials unlock is far beyond what the written word can even express, and must instead be experienced first hand. Will you join us in knowing?

FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGY — Mardukite 10th Anniversary Reboot featuring “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible”

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the modern “Mardukite” New Thought movement, the Director of “Mardukite Research & Development”Joshua Free—returns to “Mardukite TV” on YouTube for a 10th Anniversary “Reboot” series is dedicated to reintroducing the world to the NexGen work of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” and especially the primary source book of the movement, developed underground over the past decade as— NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE —available as a 10th Anniversary Hardcover Collector’s Edition on October 30, 2018.

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary contribution toward true “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, mystical and esoteric research. It draws from a unique and unparalleled modern effort combining archaeological findings with the esoteric (“mystical” and “magical”) traditions—forming the backbone of what Truth Seekers are looking for! This book specifically concerns hard to find information about the Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Egyptians… even including the Yezidic Traditions and Zoroastrianism.

Until the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement, this information remained in the backwaters of human consciousness—even in the “New Age movement”—because they have not been as accessible as European traditions and other more popular and classical customs and revivals that are more widely accessible today—including even the Egyptians and the Hermetic Mysteries from the Classical Age. NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE revives the heart and soul of humanity directly from the cradle of civilization as a complete cuneiform tablet collection anthology, translated and beautifully presented in its raw and undefiled state.

What sets the modern “Mardukite” organization and movement apart from a lot of others—and also the subject of some controversy—is the fact that it is a balanced combination of the “esoteric” and the “academic” or archaeological. As a New Thought Movement, the modern “Mardukite” methodology is not passive—it is an active movement—balanced coherently in the logic of philosophies and science. For a decade, the organization has operated underground as a collective of NexGen “Truth Seekers” essentially seeking the well-springs of hidden information, historical records, research of cuneiform tablets—which includes “esoteric” (“spiritual” and “mystical”) experimentation. This method of development, under the direction of Joshua Free, has led to the highly effective growth of this paradigm around the world.

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE reveals the “Ancient Mystery Tradition” as it first appears, when civilization is developing in Mesopotamia. This became the groundwork for later derived “Hermetic Traditions” and the “Underworld Mysteries” and legacy of “Books of the Dead,” not to mention the influences directly on Semitic lore and development of Judeo-Christian tradition, including the “Book of Genesis” and “Book of Enoch” and the entirety of the Kabbalah!

These raw underground materials have shaped the existence of man’s beliefs and traditions for thousands of years; right from the heart of Mesopotamia — the Ancient Near East: Sumer, Babylon and even Egypt!

Nearly a decade since the modern Mardukite inception – and thousands of copies in print – the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, spiritual and mystical research drawn from a unique unparalleled combination of archaeological findings and esoteric mystical magical traditions. Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Egyptian, Yezidic, Zoroastrian… and more. The heart and soul of humanity, from the cradle of civilization, is laid out clearly for the “Truth Seeker” to see – in its pure and undefiled state.

Join thousands of others and take a Self-honest moment in life now, to invest yourself in the path of “true knowledge,” where you may find the empowerment and enlightenment of “true experience” – true Gnosis.

This edition of the NECRONOMICON is the single most ancient and pure unaltered lore concerning the hottest topics of our time and all times, including divinity, creation, human origins, aliens, religion, pantheistic magickal traditions, alternate dimensions, portals and the afterlife.

In this new millennium of uncertainties, it is most likely that the uncovering of the past will reveal our future.

Revitalized and updated anew for a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition, Joshua Free’s amazing NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE has already proven popular in the underground, sparking the ‘Mardukite Movement’ and inspiring several additional years of intensive research and experimentation into the ‘Mardukite Mysteries’ resulting in the ‘Mardukite Core’ — all of which begins with this very special tome…

Real Ancient Magic Rites & Rituals – Incantation of Eridu, The Deep of Enki | Sumerian Babylonian Mesopotamian

Through Marduk, the power of Eridu – incantation-prayer – was taught to the scribes of Nabu and the Mardukite Priests, who were taught to attract and compel the ‘gods’ in the name of Marduk, always incanting the word-formula of the highest order: Nabu invoked by way of the name of Marduk; Marduk invoked by way of the name of Enki, Our Father, who in turn would invoke by the name of Anu – and so was born the concept of magical hierarchies, an ideal that was convoluted and obscured when employed later (during the Middle Ages and such), particularly distorted by the Judeo-Christian paradigm as evident in many popular grimoires
–The Book of Marduk by Nabu

Many version of Erudite magic may be found through the Mesopotamian ‘spiritual’ (or ‘magical’) cuneiform texts. The incantation tablets from the ‘Mardukite’ Babylonian Anunnaki tradition, specifically those used and forged by scribe-priests of the Order of Nabu, are invoked from the ‘perspective’ (authority) of NABU – as was the tradition learned verbatim from MARDUK. In both scholarly and esoteric ‘Mardukite’ texts, the ‘Opening Ritual’ of Mardukite magic is derived from the source titled: “The Incantation of Eridu.”

JOSHUA FREE explains this magic in the Liber-50 material released as SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free, also available in the Year-2 Mardukite Core Anthology GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON edited by Joshua Free.

Perhaps the most fundamental ‘formula’ of the magical system in Babylonia, if there is one, goes back to the heart of the system born of the scribe-priests and the figures who brought this system about – NABU and the appropriation of his father, MARDUK as the chief director. This is the spiritual acknowledgment alluded to by the Incantation of Eridu, also known as the ‘Incantation of the Priest of Eridu’ (Eridu being the shrine-home of ENKI), or the ‘Incantation of the Deep’, which simply refers to another name for the far-away abode of ENKI near the Persian Gulf.

Ceremonial activation of the ‘birthright’ of Anunnaki power sealed in Eridu (and then in Babylon) allows a practitioner to assume the representative form of the “ Priest of Eridu,” a title first bestowed upon MARDUK by ENKI, then passed onto NABU during the solidification and heights of the Babylonian era. The esoteric key in effect here is that the priest conducts the incantations (ceremony) as the embodiment of an intermediary ‘messenger’ deity – the original semantic of the word “invocation” – thereby directing the cosmic (world) order, in essence, first hand.

The magician approaches his deity as himself – a servant priest – and petitions to assume the godform, whereby he continues the ceremony as a divine representation of the god ‘invoked’. An almost identical principle appears within Semitic mysticism and the Judeo-Kabbalah – an excellent example being found in contemporary Catholicism, when the priest ‘assumes the Christ-form’ to effectively perform a perceived alchemical transmutation on the sacramental bread and wine, conducted as a representative of Jesus on earth, in imitation (dramatic reenactment) of the Last Supper.

In the ‘Mardukite’ system observed in Babylon, the god being invoked is MARDUK. This is affirmed with the priest’s first utterance of: “It is not I, but Marduk, who speaks the incantation.” And from then on the system is sealed and readied for use by the Mardukite devotee. Consider the lines in this conjuration, adapted from the Mardukite Tablet-Y in NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free:

It is not I, but Marduk, Slayer of Serpents,
Who summons thee.
It is not I, but Enki, Father of the Magicians,
Who calls thee here now.

An examination of the remaining lines of the ‘Incatation of Eridu’ appears here, though the “Mardukite” version is given fully in the Tablet-Y Series. As described, the ritual operates as if from the perspective of NABU (speaking for MARDUK). Though variations exist across the opening lines of several Assyrian “exorcisms,” one key tablet example – translated by R.C. Thompson as his “Tablet N” for Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia (1903) – relates:

The Priest of E.A. [Enki] am I.
The priest of Damkina [Ninki] am I.
The messenger [Nabu] of Marduk am I.
My spell is the spell of E.A [Enki].
My incantation is the incantation of Marduk.
The ‘magic circle’ of EA [Enki] is in my hand.
The tamarask (of Anu), in my hand, I hold.

From the modernized Mardukite version, the opening lines read (from Tablet-Y in Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible):

I am the Priest of Marduk,
Son of Our Father, Enki.
I am the Priest of Eridu,
And the Magician of Babylon

The Assyrian version continues humbly as follows:

EA [Enki], King of the Deep
See me favorably.
I, the magician, am thy slave.
March thou on my right hand,
Assist me on my left;
Add thy pure spell to mine.
Add thy pure voice to mine.
O god that blesses me, Marduk,
Let me be blessed, wherever my path rests.
Thy power, shall god and man proclaim.
And I too, the magician, thy slave

E.A. Budge transliterates an older version for Babylonian Life & History (1883) and we see a slightly different method for petitioning the “younger pantheon” to the side of the priest:

I am the Priest of EA [Enki].
I am the Magician of Eridu.
Shammash [Samas] is before me.
Sin [Nanna] is behind me.
Nergal is at my right hand.
Ninurta is at my left hand

Later added to this, the modern Mardukite version appends:

Anu, above me, King of Heaven.
Enki, below me, King of the Deep.
The power [blood] of Marduk is within me.
It is not I, but Marduk, who performs the incantation.
